Langtang is a narrow valley bordering to Tibet but still far away from Tibetan Plateau. In Langtang you will discover the heavenly beauty of the land with its rushing rivers and lush forests. A great influence of Tibet can be experienced in this valley. Tamang tribe is the main settler in this region. Langtang is protected as a national park and it has a number of high peaks which attracts lots of tourist. Langtang is the second largest National Park of Nepal and it is also one of the least crowded trekking destinations. There are around 4500 people who lives inside the park and more dependent in timber and firewood. The majority of people stays here are Tamangs. The park contained a wide variety of climatic zones, trees like Oak, Maple, Pine, Rhododendron. It also has animals like Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr (goat), Rhesus monkeys, Red Pandas.

This trekking trail gives you the opportunity to explore the villages, climb small peaks, visit glaciers at comfortably low elevations. This trek is only for 7-8 days but you will see more life here. Tibetan people live here so there are more chances for you to see the culture of Tibetan people and Tibetan influence is clearly visible here in this region.

This trekking can be done easily and because it is near Kathmandu so you do not have to spend more money in the transportation. Your trekking day will be started from Syabrubesi and then trek to north leaving some government buildings. You will enjoy the nice alpine views and Tibetan-style villages.
